Perfect season for St. A Queens volleyball

With a perfect season under their belt, the St. Augustine Queens senior girls’ volleyball team knows they have a challenge ahead

The St. Augustine Queens volleyball team has a perfect season under their belts and look forward to zones. Here they play Wetaskiwin at their Turkey Burner tournament.

With a perfect season under their belt, the St. Augustine Queens senior girls’ volleyball team knows they have a challenge ahead — especially if they want to make it to provincials.

Coach Darren Josephison said the Queens have never made it to provincials but feels they have a fighting chance this year. Because of their record, the Queens host league finals Nov. 9 and 10 with the top three teams advancing to zone finals Nov. 17.

But there are a few obstacles in their way.

“There’s probably three others (teams) just as good as us,” said Josephison.

Those teams are Daysland, Bawlf and Provost. Players are feeling the pressure but are trying to have a realistic outlook as well, and he reminds his players it is not the “be-all end-all” for the team if they do not make it. “Only one team can win the Stanley Cup and only one team can win the Super Bowl.”

Despite the words of caution, Josephison and his players are looking to fine-tune their lineup, trying to find the best combination of power and setup, and offense and defense.

With all the anticipation some team members also manage school and a job so Josephison wants to find a balance between everyday challenges and volleyball.

They Queens are proud of their hard work though and he is confident of their chances. “We’re in a good position, we have just as much a chance as everybody else.”

The Queens won all their league matches with a 36-0 record and recently finished a tournament with a 14-0 record giving them 109 wins and 14 losses in all the games played over the season.
